that is where you are no longer going to use it. now you could still use the argument and you hear that argument more often on the republican side which is just sort of let them all slaughter each other, and without a great consideration of the strategic calculations in the middle east because it's sort of like the middle east, just go away. so, i think that is also a pretty powerful again, i would emphasize -- emphasize if you had to write now put your finger on something that would change the dynamic here, that has to be turkey. turkey. i think, i think professor -- professor, president obama's out of this one unless you see something happen in turkey or if you just see the slaughter accelerate at such a rate that we are more or less obliged to do something. it's possible that if the fsa could get ahold of aleppo and declared a free city to set up an opposition government in aleppo and figure out some way how to stop the armor, the artillery and the planes from driving them out at least for a while, that you could rapidly change the dynamic. and it would certainly be, it would certainly be an

his comments out of context. trying to make him look bad. is he now back in the u.s. and on to the domestic campaign. shep. >> did the governor say he is concerned with the flap with the palestinians could hurt him if he becomes president? >> he did. as we were talking after the interview he said that it's the kind of thing that should he become president really make it difficult for him to help negotiate long-term peace in a two-state solution with the palestinians because of their hostility. what he said was that culture can actually determine outcomes and the comparison was the israeli economy to the palestinian economy. they were very upset. here is how he explained it. >> did not speak about the palestinian culture or the decisions made in their economy. that's an interesting topic that perhaps can deserve scholarly analysis. but i actually didn't address that instead, i will point out that the choice is a society makes has a profound impact on the economy and the vitality of that society. >> i know, i know. >> shepard: we all know now. >> and so mr. romney's pl
journal" which is owned by the parent company of this network. john bussey is with us. how do we process this? >>john: it is a very bad recession with an unusually bad effect on younger people. our economic supporter has a piece on this situation. if you look back to the last bad recession in the early 1980's, it went down and it came back. people lost jobs or could not find work and then they could it recovered quickly. this is taking so long that we are finding younger people are going, now, for years without finding a job. and the key thing is that at the beginning of your career, you move around a lot. you are chasing the brass ring trying to find what you want to do. the bulk of your income growth happens in those early years. so it is setting young people back in a number of bad ways. >>shepard: there is one way to look at that, that our economy and our model has not changed with the times in the way it has in other countries. >>guest: or if you have a recession brought on by a financial sector crisis, not a business sector crisis, where the inventories rise and you have to burn th

're with us everybody. i'm jenna lee. jon: i'm jon scott. the concerns coming out with the release of the new gdp numbers. our commerce department says the economy grew at annual rate of 1.5% from april to june. americans spending at their slowest pace in a year. economists say growth at or below 2% is not enough to lower the unemployment rate. they do not expect growth to pick up much in the second half of the year either. let's talk about it with karl rove, former senior advisor and deputy chief of staff to president george w. bush. he is also a fox news contributor. karl, what do you make of these numbers? >> well not good, not good for the country and not good politically for the president. here's a look, jon, if you will, you remember the growth here, number in the second quarter is 1.5%. for the year it is estimated to be 2% though i suspect a lot of people will be lowering their estimates now that we've had 1.5% in the second quarter and 2% in the first quarter. but here's what looked like in previous reelections. when president bush ran for re-election it was 2.6% in the second quarte
went from roughly, i think 6.2% now to 8.2%. and remember, he promised us we would be far more better shape than we are today. january 10 of 2009, if you want to know exactly what will happen when the stimulus bill passes take a look at the report prepared by the head of his council of economic advisors. it forecast unemployment would be 6% today. last year the administration forecast for economic growth this year was 4%. that is twice the rate that at best we're going to hit this year. no wonder, joe bide, actually captures reality of it recently when he got off message and said, quote, for millions of americans americans this is a depression. it ain't working. jon: you have to hand it to the white house for looking at the silver lining for these numbers. here is a statement from alan krueger, the current chairman of the council of economic voors advisors. he says in part, the economy moves in the right direction additional growth is needed to replace the jobs lost in the deep recession that began and the end of 2007. there is never an opportunity lost to remind us that all of this s
